Make him a decent offer, and I believe he will sell it to you.
Sorry about that!! Guess I didn't know any better... I'll delete it!
It's gone! Deleted! Vanished!...
Good call man, very sporting of you.
Many thanks for helping keep this thread on track.
This is just downright incredible. Ya ....I would agree,you do like stainless.
Nothing new to this thread, lately? Or was this continued in another thread?
Here's one I saw at the Pacific Dream Machines show a couple years ago. Maybe not so HAMB friendly, but pretty sick non the less
I hope you guys aren't serious that thing is not pleasing to the eye there's no flow and I personally don't like the 2 butthole exhaust outlets.
Very serious.I just think the stance really makes the car flow.
Hey Jeff, I think you were hacked. Someone changed your avatar.
That bronze Caddy is hideous to the eye.
how do you drive that bronze pig at night?
I read that lights come thru the grill.Im trying to get a hold of the builder and I will ask him.Lights or no lights you got to love this Kustom.
HAHAHA!!!! Jeff....nice avatar and I like your new open-minded comments...I mean, all that Barris and Ayala stuff is so old-fashioned and boring...time for some square headlights and dummy spots!
the back of that car is just wrong
I think the car is just a tad high tech for the gorgeous traditional stance.Im not sure why he went with such a traditional stance on very high tech car.Im really splitting hairs but the old style stance blended with new, really is working for me.
hear is my truck.... 1941 studebaker, chopped roof, chaneled, pancaked hood, chopped cowel, custome frame, quickchange, wide five hubs and wheels
Jeff must be drunk or from his traditional stance the lack of blood flow to the frontal lobe of his brain has done some damage. Seriously though you would shit if you saw the amount of bondo during the build of that Caddy or his Buick he had a couple years ago.
I wish some others would follow suit.
Uhhh. No you don't.
I don't know JeffSled personally, but I read alot of HAMB stuff, and my money is on that his password has been compromised. That or a head injury. Hope you're okay dude.
I definitely found it interesting, which is why I took the pics. I still can't seem to decide on if I like it or not. Either way it is custom, that's for sure!
The only way you're going to make that hot is to set fire to it.
EDIT;zman,I just got it.Killer truck!
the bronze car!! what is it with hi away lights and winged quarters without lights!! Sorry Lights are a must on a custom.. The profile is cool.. cant take to the front or back!!
Interesting it may be, but it really doesn't belong on the HAMB.
Jeff, are you ok?
WTF !!! That is not Jeff for sure !
As someone else once said..."what's been seen cannot be unseen." It may be "kustom", but I guess there's no accounting for taste.
I've got a '48 Caddy sedanet sitting in my shed, waiting for me to drag it out and make a nice "kustom" out of it...now all I'll see for months is that P.O....uh, ehr...Caddy...
WOW! you cats sure paint with a broad brush.........................
The bronze caddie kinda has a DeRosa/Hines vibe, and I gotta hand it to the builder that he didn't build another ''me-too cliche''!
Would I build one like it? uh, no! Would I hope that if I parked it in a rough neighborhood that the wheels would be gone when I returned? Yes! Would I change the rake so that silly scrape profile would be history? Inna New York minute!
" Just cuz ya pull the door handles off a vehicle and cover it in flake don't make it a kustom"
I think the other issues with it besides the ones you pointed out are the mono color paint job, or lack of chrome/stainless. The lack of headlights. The ass end looks like someone watched that Batman movie from '89 too many times. I admit it could be fixed, but I just don't think its for here.
